Hi All

Just found this site , I was diagnosed with Wegeners approx 4 years ago. I was walking about for 9 months thinking i had a bad head cold after numorous visits to the Docs things started to go downhill. Aching joints , weigh loss red eyes crusty nose bleeds every morning. I was referred to See a consultant who admitted me right away . I was given a Cyclo by intrevious drip and left hospital 3 weeks later in a much improved condition. WG went into remission for approx two years then it raised its ugly head again. I was blasted again with Cyclo which kicked it into touch again . I have had some hearing loss as well as developing Psoratis Arthritus all tied in with the wegeners. I am now on many tablets everyday to help keep this thing at bay. Monthly blood screening also keeps things in check. I have continued to work successfully but still have off days due to fatique and soreness of the limbs. My outlook I feel is okay everyday is a blessing .

I hope this helps

Take care and God Bless Seanog
